- Web Transfer: the Web Transfer module has undergone a complete UI redesign for the 5.5.0 release, making it more aesthetically pleasing, and easier to use. The ability to perform bulk uploads and apply bulk metadata has been also been added.
- Ooyala Flex Query Language: the FQL has been added to Publish in the 5.5 release. The Ooyala Flex Query Language enables you to carry out complex structured searches in Ooyala Flex.
